Candy’s Customer Reviews

Our wedding cake was the cake of our dreams. It was the first thing on the day to make me cry as it was just so perfect! Candy was a total joy to deal with. My sisters, mum and I visited her beautiful showroom and received a very personal and professional service. Candy’s skill is in listening to what you want and then being able to produce it in an even more beautiful way than you could possibly imagine yourself. I was very clear on the design I wanted, this was perfectly interpreted for my stunning wedding cake.


Fantastic service received, nothing was too much trouble even when we couldn’t decide on flavours she gave us more samples and never rushed us into making our mind up, she also designed the cake the same as my dress, everyone said it was the best cake they had ever had, and I couldn’t agree more!!!


Our cake was stunning and so delicious!! We had a 4 tier cake with 4 flavours so was a little for everyone. The cake was designed so that it was unique to us and incorporated elements from our day, I even asked for a specific cake stand and Candy obliged!


Thank you so much for our beautiful daisy wedding cake, it looked stunning and tasted out of this world! I cannot thank you enough. I will be recommending you to everyone!!!
Amazing, thank you so much once again xx


Candice was very pleasant & helpful. She was very knowledgeable about the product & quickly understood where we were coming from. Everything we asked for was accommodated; she was only a phone call away. Also we had plenty of free samples to choose from. The cake was absolutely amazing & gorgeous.


As soon as I met Candy she knew what the theme was for my wedding and how to relay that in my cake, she worked together with the florist and captured the exact colour of my flowers to incorporate that within the cake. It was perfect.


Having looked around numerous cake makers at various wedding venues Candy outshone them all, she listened to what we wanted and advised us on our choice and invited us to her studio to view further creations over coffee and cake, all in all a brilliant experience and well recommended 5*+

Dan & Jess

Our wedding cake and cupcakes looked and tasted amazing! Candy was lovely to work with and interpreted our theme perfectly. It was really difficult to choose between all of the different flavours because they were all so delicious so in the end we had 5 flavours of cupcakes!

Ellen & Tim

We booked Candy because her cakes are absolutely delicious and she was so helpful and accommodating and conveniently located just down the road from us. We were impressed with outstanding service and absolutely beautiful cakes! They taste so good as well. Candy even remade our top tier for us after the venue forgot to save us any. Amazing wedding cake designer!

Kirsty & Hugh

The presentation, quality and standard of service I received was way over expectation. The cake and favours on our wedding day were beautiful and we received lots of compliments. A wedding can be really stressful and to me Candy showed me that you can put faith in people to help you along the way.


She was so enthusiastic about the idea of designing a cake that wasn’t the normal style of wedding cake, which meant a lot to us. Her cake samples were delicious, she was friendly and helpful and she wasn’t too expensive


Niel & Jen

We were let down by another supplier and a friend recommended Candy at Love Candy Cakes. Candy met with us a couple of days after our enquiry and made us feel at ease given the situation. The sample cakes were out of this world and we were really confident Love Candy Cakes would deliver something perfect. I clicked with her as soon as we started talking; she made the process not only easy and stress less but fun and exciting!!


Excellent service from start to finish – Went to Candy with no idea of what to have, and ended up with the most amazing wedding cake on our special day, the design & detailing on the cake was second to non. Candy’s designs are awesome and inspiring. We didn’t know such things could be done with edible materials! Candy was warm and friendly and truly knowledgeable about her craft. Her boutique style studio was also testament to her eye for detail and not forgetting how delicious her cakes were….with lots of choice on offer. We would not hesitate to recommend and our guests all commented on how spectacular the cake was. Everyone commented of the amazing flavours of the cake too!!


I had seen a beautiful cake in a wedding magazine and was going to see if someone could make a version of it for me – I was overjoyed when I was actually able to locate the team that actually created the cake.


She was professional, approachable and friendly with an amazing portfolio- not to mention the delicious cake samples she offered us! Even when I said I didn’t know what I wanted Love Candy managed to create the cake of my dreams. I loved it!


After speaking to Candy over the phone, I knew instantly that I want her to be my wedding cake designer. She has amazing sugar flowers skills, very on trend and very creative with her design. The taste of the cakes was out of this world… we were spoiled with choices of the fingers cake at the initial meeting. I am just really glad that Candy was my wedding cake designer.
